Getting Married: Amanda and Derek

07-22-amanda11

It's these two lovely people, that have been distracting me from my blog lately. I've been working furiously at getting 40 of the eleventy-billion beautiful photos of them processed to share!

Do you remember them? Yes, they are the couple that we have so much overlapping history, that their family is almost my family. I have proof, I could post photos, but we'll save that for later. In the meantime, let these photos tell you about their beautiful day, in May, at the lake. (the exact place were were married, by the same minister even :)

Fastest. Bride. Ever!

No really, the girls spent more time tieing their bows than it took for Amanda to get dressed. Step in. zip. DONE. hah.

Amanda and Derek agreed to a "First look". This is where you have a little traditional, mixed with making the day more simple. Before the wedding, we met up, Derek, myself and Amanda came along and "discovered" us on this beautiful little bridge in the middle of the woody area. He turns and surprise, gets to see her dressed for the first time.

It's one of my very favorite moments of the day.

It also gives them a quiet moment together alone, which is probably the last one for the day. We take this opportunity to do a mini shoot of the couple.

Everywhere were awesome peonies in every shade of pink from nearly white, to deep fuchsia. They admitted to everyone they knew in many, many miles, stripping them from their own gardens.

wonderful job! I am super impressed with all the outside pictures and how non-blown the highlights are! I struggle with that!
